Students going back to school can be a huge project. VCG
Going back to school every September can be stressful for most students. However, some schools in China manage to make this process easier.
A high school in Hebei:
Treasure hunting to start the semester
Teachers from a high school in Hebei recently held a treasure hunt challenge to lighten up the atmosphere of getting back to school for students. Teachers hid coupons in surprising places around the school, such as the top of bookshelves or the bottom of basketball hoops. Students who manage to collect the coupons are rewarded with gifts, including books and stuffed toys.
Universities in Zhejiang:
Need help carrying your luggage?
Has carrying your suitcases up and down in your dorm building been a headache? Zhejiang University City College has come up with some interesting methods to solve this problem. They use a scaling ladder to lift luggage from the first floor. Instead of sweating buckets students can sit in their dorms and wait for the suitcases to be transported to them. Meanwhile, in the Department of Sports Science of Zhejiang University, freshmen must do the three-meter jump to get help for carrying luggage.
Assigning roommates with big data
Getting along with roommates can be tricky when everyone has different habits and personalities. Chengdu University offers a “roommate-selection system” based on big data, which means that after students fill out the questionnaire, including questions about their hobbies, sleeping habits, their roommates will be automatically assigned by the system based on their preferences. This way, students have more control over who they share their room with.
With considerate teachers and a personalized atmosphere, students will be more ready for the upcoming semester.
